Scribbles on the blackboard


Our research is focused on the study models for quantum information processing and fundamental aspects of quantum information theory. This includes interdisciplinary work that aims to study the prospect of artificial intelligence in the context of quantum mechanics. If you are interested, you can watch Hans Briegel talk about our research on explainable AI in science on YouTube (presentation delivered at the SFB BeyondC Conference 2022).
